Funding of regional education

Public funds for education are funds from the public budget comprising the state budget, municipal budgets and budgets of higher territorial units. Its position, function and drawing up are regulated by the Act of the National Council of the Slovak Republic No. 253/2004 of the Law Code on budgetary rules of public administration.  Funding sources include rental revenues from renting space, profits from business activity, contributions and gifts, and other sources, subject to a special regulation.  The Act No. 597/2003 of the Law Code on financing primary schools, secondary schools and school facilities has put in place normative financing per pupil, starting from 1 January 2004.

The school financing is based on normative principle; the schools are financed according to number of pupils and personnel and economic demands of educational process.

Starting from 2004, financial resources for education were covered from the state budget being allocated under the Chapter of the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the SR (higher education institutions, primary schools, secondary schools, school facilities) and, since 2013, under both the Chapter of the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the Slovak Republic and the Chapter of the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic. Following the 2004 tax reform, resources from other public budgets were added to the public resources from the state budget, namely from municipal and higher territorial units budgets (self-governing regions), to ensure in particular the performance of their original competencies.


From the 1st January 2013, the financial resources for education from the state budget have been allocated:

a) from the budget chapter of the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of  the Slovak Republic:

  • to the schools, in which the education is considered as systematic training for profession in the founder competence of higher territorial units

b) from the budget Chapter of the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic

  • to the schools, in which the education is considered as systematic vocational training in the founding competence of the municipality,  church founder, private founder and district office in the seat of the region,
  • to the kindergartens for children with special education needs in the founder competence of the district office in the seat of the region,
  • to the school facilities  in the founder competence of the district office in the seat of the region.

From own taxes of municipalities and higher territorial unit are funding:

  • kindergartens, basic schools of art, language schools and school facilities in the founder competence of the municipalities and higher territorial units
  • kindergartens, basic schools of art, language schools and school facilities in the founder competence of church and private founders


Funding of higher education

Funding of public universities is carried out by the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the Slovak Republic based on the Act no. 131/2002 of Law Code on Higher Education.

Financial support from the state budget for a public university is comprised of subsidies for:

  • uskutočňovanie akreditovaných študijných programov,
  • research, development or art activity,
  • development of a university,
  • social support of students,
  • bežné výdavky,
  • kapitálové výdavky.

It is possible to provide subsidies from the state budget to a private university as well.
